On Saturday, April 4 at 4:45 AM, nine members of the Batesville High School Quiz Bowl Team left for Fort Smith to compete in the Arkansas Government Quiz Bowl Association’s State Finals.

Sponsor Mrs. Weygandt, along with the Quiz Bowl Captain Preston Caldwell, Clare Brown, William and Stuart Allgood, Jon-Michael Poff, NaTanya Clark, Sam Johnson, and Katie Cummins were all in attendance.

“It was interesting to see different teams from across the state,” commented Brown.

After a fierce day of competing, the team brought back the 3rd place trophy. “Batesville played extremely well. We were proud of taking 3rd at State!” exclaimed Mrs. Weygandt.

“I was hoping to win a trip to the State Finals, but getting 3rd was a great way to top off my senior year,” stated Preston Caldwell, who was invited to participate in the Arkansas Governor’s Quiz Bowl All-Star Tournament.

“We are proud of this team’s efforts and their representing BHS in this manner,” commented Principal David Campbell. Thanks for bringing home another trophy for BHS!
